As expected the weather got better and already Thursday the missing 1/3 part of the grass arrived in Genova. This afternoon the team of Mr. Gasperini trained on the new pitch and everybody was happy to play finally on a good and green field.

The other 5: Paro, Potenza, Gasbarroni, Palladino and Milito are still injured.
